My neihbors garage

I was walking towards my place and my neihbors garage was open. I saw from a distance a glass sign. I recognized it right away. He wasn't around so I caught up with him a few days later and inquired about the sign in his garage. He said there was 3 of them. He was not aware that He should be taking ...

Re: Chipping question

Thanks Dave,

I believe I was being a bit too critical. After looking again this morning it is rather
hard to notice. I will go ahead with the bright outline as planned and live with it.

Chipping question

I just did some chipping. I usually use the asphaltum method when there is fine detail. There was some fine details on this piece in question and I kind of jumped the gun and used the mask method. Everything turned out well except for a few areas where I got some plinks. There will be no hiding them...

Re: Old Sign Shop

Pat, I think you're right. It looks like pearl.

I still like the idea of a chipped white gold center with a bright 23k outline.
I'm wondering if that has been done, I'm sure it has.
Seems like it would look real good. Can't wait to do it.

Gilmore Gasoline

These are "globes" for a vintage gas pump circa 1922. The artwork is the same except the client wanted some gold in the design. The glass was allready slumped so I had to let the glue thicken and then brushed it on. It worked out good. These are backlit so there was some airbrush work involved to ma...

Re: Gilding on Sand Blasted Foam

I agree with Kent, only after the priming is done I letter over the letters or areas to be gilded with lettering enamel, then the slow size. Jim's gold is good quality and his prices are great too.

Re: Asphaltum method

Thanks guys. I have 2 pieces I'm getting ready to chip. Not too much of the area needs chipped, but I'm going to try both methods without asphaltum. One with mask, one without. I'll see what suits me best. Thanks Rod for bringing this thread back.

Well, I guess I'll go on then.

Re: Asphaltum method

O.K., I'm seeing the light here. I'm going to have to find where that thread was explaining the spreading of all that glue evenly.... did you just spread the glue with a sqeegee or use a trowell? Seems like I remember a trowell. Asphaltum IS nasty to clean off.

Thanks!

Re: Asphaltum method

All that cutting around everything seems to me to be extra work, that could easily be avoided by the use of asphaltum. At least on smaller pieces. On larger pieces like Larry shows cutting can save on applying the asphaltum, but on a larger piece that has a lot of detail would'nt that mean more unne...
